Information about the venue
If you’ve ever fancied getting married in an outstanding Grade I listed country house set within 13 acres of glorious gardens and grounds and surrounded by delightful pastoral countryside, then Finchcocks in Goudhurst, Kent (just off the A21) is a beautiful and impressive Georgian manor house which may well be ideal for your Wedding Day celebrations. For forty-five years Finchcock’s was renowned as a musical museum housing a world-class collection of over one hundred historic pianos and keyboard instruments. When the owners retired in 2015, the collection was auctioned off for charity, and the magnificent building and gardens are now available for private hire.
The gardens have, over the years, been restored and redesigned to provide year round seasonal colour and interest and are sure to provide you with endless photographic backgrounds for your exclusive wedding pictures. Wide gravel paths meander through manicured lawns with a wonderful variety of specimen trees, herbaceous borders and an orchard planted with a mass of Spring bulbs. There is also a walled garden and ha-ha planted in the style of an 18th century Pleasure Garden.
The principal house is set back about a mile from the road, and is approached over a long private lane flanked by rolling farmland and stunning open views over the surrounding parkland. Built in 1725, the house is one of the finest examples of Georgian architecture in the country and has high ceilings and oak paneling, and the location has been regularly used for recordings on period instruments – there was even a jazz club featured on BBC television. Finchcocks also has a variety of Grade II listed outbuildings including: The Coach House and The Barn, and a magnificent two-storey Oast House with a state of the art kitchen, exposed beams, tall ceilings and beautiful oak flooring. The Oast boasts an outdoor heated swimming pool and a tennis court.
Finchcocks offers a unique venue in which to entertain your close friends and family, and will ensure that you and your partner spend a romantic day and come away with a stunning set of wedding photographs that will remind you of your Special Day forever.
